Forbes Declares American Singer, Rihanna Officially a Billionaire

Published

on

US singer, Robyn Fenty aka Rihanna, has been declared a billionaire by American business magazine, Forbes.

The magazine stated that Rihanna attained the feat due to a cosmetic company, Fenty Beauty, which she launched in 2017.

With a worth of $1.7 billion, Rihanna is now the wealthiest female musician in the world. She comes second to Oprah Winfrey who is the richest female entertainer in the world.

The singer owns 50 per cent of Fenty Beauty which produced an estimated $1.4 billion of her wealth, with the rest coming mostly from music.

The other 50 per cent of the cosmetic company is controlled by French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH.

Her lingerie line, Savage x Fenty, which was launched in 2018 raised $115 million in funding.

However, it is not everything touched by the singer that turns to gold.

Forbes reported that LVMH and Rihanna confirmed that they “shut down their other venture, a high-end fashion and accessories house also called Fenty. Launched in 2019, Fenty sought to extend Rihanna’s brand of inclusivity and offer styles in a range of sizes. But like many luxury fashion brands, the high-priced line suffered during the pandemic, releasing its last collection in November 2020.”

She recently discussed her brief relationship with the American rapper in a two-minute TikTok video. They dated from January to February, earlier this year.

Being a fan of both West and the Kardashians, she initially ignored his advances but eventually decided gave in to get him off Kim’s back.

When I had a fashion line 10 years ago, [the Kardashians] bought our clothes and sold them in their stores, so I’ve always had, like, a love for Kim. Like, the big three. Khloé, Kim, Kourtney, those are my girls,” she stated.

Fox also revealed that she ignored the advances because she didn’t want to be in a relationship with a celebrity again, given that they are boring.

In her words, “He was texting me. I wasn’t really answering. I was like, ‘I don’t want to hook up with a celebrity again.’ Like, nothing ever comes of it. They’re kinda boring, like, they’re not what you think they’re going to be like. I was like, ‘Oh my God. Maybe I can get him off of Kim’s case. Like, ‘Maybe I can distract him, like, just get him to like me. And I knew if anyone can do it, it’s me because when I set my mind to something, I do it.”
